It is at night when the light is low, that the city lights itself.  

Cars move along roads, traffic lights change colors;  the passage of time is evidenced in remnants of light that was.  

Each city has its own light, affected by atmosphere and bulb choices in the offices, signs and street lamps.  

To capture the ephemera of a city and the ambiance of an urban landscape is to let my lens open and give  the city time to allow an extended moment to creep into the photograph.

These photographs are long-exposure night portraits of various cities around the world.
